What punishment would face a young American man (not a teenager) who killed a homeless dog?

On Russian live talk show, there was an episode about cruelty of today’s Russian people. This man beheaded a homeless dog, held the dog head, made a picture and posted on his site.
He was not arrested, fined or anything. He was a “guest” on a show, a creep, and defended himself saying that was nothing and he needed a popularity. His mother agreed with him.

Why does my dog start barking then wining then sobbing and crying when she sees a rabbit from our glass door?

The noise she makes is weird,funny and cute. So what we did was one of us ran out the door and scared the rabbit away and she calmed down. She is an American Foxhound German Shepard mix.

Dogs are predators, and rabbits are prey. All dogs – especially sporty hunting ones, likes yours – have the urge to chase prey animals and try and catch them.

She simply wants you to let her out so she can chase it down.

My cat is warmer than normal and puking, what could be wrong?

I have an 8-year-old female cat, she is a little larger than most. Yesterday and today her head, neck and ears have been warm to the touch. Her nose is dry and today she has been vomiting, not regurgitating. I can’t take her to a 24-hour emergency vet because I can’t afford to unless it’s a dire emergency. I am really worried because I just recently lost my other cat to liver cancer. I could really use some help. Thanks.

This could be a dire emergency, and it could be easily treatable. Definitely worth going to the vet. Ask about time payments or discounts. Some do, some don’t, but it’s worth asking.

Good luck!!

Can please somebody can tell me where can I buy a Norwegian forest cat in the Philippines?

Please can somebody tell me where can I buy a Norwegian forest cat in the Philippines specifically on the area of metro manila… Please I really want that kind of cat T_T

Honestly there are very few breeders of Norwegian Forest Cats in general. I don’t believe there are any in the Philippines. Denmark, Germany, UK and the Netherlands actually have to most breeders. Most good breeders are actually willing to ship cats anywhere but the cats themselves cost a pretty penny not including the cost of shipping them. We got lucky and the only breeder in our state (US) lived an hour and a half away from us. We paid $ 500 for a kitten, but that was actually a discounted price because she was trying to reduce the numbers in her cattery. These cats can run (typically) anywhere from $ 600-$ 1200 depending on the color, pattern, and age. You would be lucky to find a kitten priced at the lower end of this range. Good luck with finding a cat, and if you can afford it they are so worth it. They are most adorable kittens ever and are very feisty.

My dog is pregnant and it was her first heat?

No bitching about getting her spayed, too late. I was planning on spaying her after her first heat, but I will not abort lives. Blah blah blah inter-breeding the “best of” the breeds ends up with the dogs having mental issues (look to the royal family for proof when King Henry ruled, or Bathory). I thought her heat was done because she wouldn’t let the male we lived with mount her. Well she and her father tied. She is 3 weeks and has morning sickness. So I’m thinking she is. What kinds of problems are rumored to be true if a bitch gets pregnant in her first heat. Just looking for common answers. Then I’ll call her vet.

I really don’t see how you can expect a decent, intelligent answer to such a rudely phrased question, let alone the backwards, neglectful situation.

How do I give my cat a liquid medicine?

I have THE most stubborn cat on this planet. He never bites us or scratches us but when it comes to cutting his nails it something he’ll scratch(never bite though unless he’s way to missed)

The problem is, he needs to take liquid medicine thrice a day. He won’t eat his food if it’s in that and water dilutes it too much.

We’ve tried putting him a blanket and doing it holding he does kinda get his mouth open a bit but escapes. And we try for 5mins and stop cuz our cat feels bad I mean c’mon even they’ve got feelings

So what to do?

You don’t even say where you live. In that case, use Google and look for breeders in your area or check Craigslist, and check for cat rescues (maybe breed specific) in your area.

What could be wrong with my dogs leg?

My dog, Trixie, was limping on her back leg several weeks ago. I was going to take her to the vets, but she ended up stopping, and walking normal. Now recently she’s started limping again, but worse then before. She can barely walk up and down our stares.

I’ll be taking her to the vet as soon as I can, but what could be wrong with her leg, and what can I do to help her until she gets to the vet?

Chosen Reply:

Answer by Lindy
She could have injured her kneecap, pulled a muscle, or have luxating petella (very common in small breeds). She needs to be seen by a vet.
